Thomas Sorrell received a BA in chemistry from New College (Sarasota, FL) 1973 and a PhD in organic chemistry from Stanford University in 1977. He subsequently joined the faculty at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he has taught and conducted research in organic and bioinorganic chemistry. Sorrell has been named an Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellow, and he has authored two textbooks in addition to several dozen research papers. Sorrell enjoys playing violin with the UNC Symphony Orchestra, and he is an avid watercolor painter. His landscape "White Rim, Green River" was accepted for display in the 2002 "Arts for the Parks" exhibition, an acclaimed international art competition aimed at raising awareness for the National Parks in the U.S.
